What makes someone a legend? Some say being one of the best in your field. Others might say it comes after many years of doing that thing you do so many times. Still others think it is when that one name keeps rising to the top of others listed in one category. Such is my definition of why I think Kozmo has reached that status along with only a handful of street performers.
One of the "cover boys" of MAGIC Magazine, Theodore "Ted" Brainard (aka "Kozmo") has built a reputation as a street magician after decades of experience and over 30,000 shows. He has made a comfortable living from the street having performed around the world and nearly every kink of climate.
But as Kozmo is moving away from frequent street performances, his time and attention has been divided between the street and his video production company, "Kozmo Magic". Not only does he direct, produce and market DVD's by some of the top professionals today (like Doc Eason, Garrett Thomas and others), he also produces the bi-monthly digital magazine, Reel Magic.
Kozmo talks on the podcast about his mentor, the late Jim Cellini, working the street, how to get crowds, similarities to trade show magic, and Reel Magic.
